The view tower on the top of Biskupská kupa is located on the Czech-Polish border and resembles a seacoast lighthouse or a giant windmill. This 18m high building is the oldest stone view tower in Moravia and provides a view of Mount Praděd
, Kralický Sněžník and even the High Tratras, if visibility is really good.
The stone view tower was built in 1898 by a German tourist association in commemoration of the 50-year reign of Emperor Franz Joseph I. Biskupská kupa has been a border point since the Middle Ages, separating the Olomouc bishopric from the Wroclaw bishopric. This is where the Habsburgs’ territory ended after the Silesian Wars.
